Gevalia LogoWe’re not coffee drinkers.  In fact, my husband has only sipped the dark brew twice – both times when I was in labor with my boys.  I on the other hand have tried to like it, but the delicious smell of it as I walk down the coffee aisle at the supermarket has never materialized in the same way by an actual sip.  So why then would we take on a review for coffee?  Because the boys at the Fire Station live on coffee and it’s usually the discount brands, unless someone shares some premium coffee with them and so when offered, I jumped at the chance to give the guys a taste of “the good stuff.”

What I sent them was some Gevalia Kaffe which is described as “more than your average `cup of joe.´”  With their 150 years in the business, they’re said to make a rich and smooth coffee that’s never bitter – something I’m told the cheap brands are famous for.

So I sent this premium luxury coffee with the hubby to the fire station and while I’d have loved to come along and take photos, these boys start their day way too early for me, so you’ll just have to take my word for it….they loved it.  It’s the first extra fine ground coffee they’ve tried and they all thought it was pretty phenomenal.  There wasn’t a clear winner between the French Roast Blend and the House Blend – they enjoyed both.

Gevalia makes 10 varieties of coffee from light to dark and flavored coffees (vanilla and mocha), and decaffenated; so there’s something for every taste.  They also sell whole beans for the grind-your-own people as well as grounds in stay-fresh packaging.

Gevalia Kaffe was previously only available online but it’s launching nationwide at Safeway stores initially with a full release to other retailers later on.
